    Still I want the heavy shuttle from Rogue One and that blockcade ship from rebels the Vigil-class Corvette it's not bigger than the tie carrier


    The sad part is I really am going to have to justify getting the 2.0 kits/rules as I kind of gave up on it when it lost it's fun

    Looking at those ships from the Clone Wars era, I have to say the prequels had some really good ship designs. I'd say better then most ships from ep. 7 and 9 even.

    The thing with 7 and 8 is there kinda AREN'T any new ships, you can see this in how starved they are in X-Wing content

    there's Kylo Ren's shuttle and those cool bombers, everything else is slight remixes of original trilogy ships, and while that serves a thematic purpose, it doesn't make for very exciting game updates

    I finally ordered a copy of Saw's Renegades since I saw a video about fixing the s-foils. Apparently they used some rubbery kind of glue on those which cause the wings to not snap open and closed properly. The later ones made for the 2.0 core set have a different glue.

    Also my local game shop has a 40% off on 1.0 X-wing. I bought a C-Roc to use as an obstacle in fights since flying around a big ship is cool and fun. Sadly they were out of Assault Gunboats.

    Yeah. I've been worried about splitting the FO and Resistance into their own factions given how heavy the core 3 are. To suddenly have this new show introducing things ALREADY... gives me a lot more faith in that choice.

    And now consider the placement of RAC. At full loadout he can cover turret, arc dodging, and even bombs if you spend points on em (bomb and torp slots sitting there unused on most builds)

    The article doesn't really cover the case of ships intended to be maimly support though, which is a failing at least from a 1.0 perspective.

    The "rotate turret arc with an action" thing is such a great way of balancing the turret mechanic. It allows arc dodgers to still be viable against a turret-heavy list, and the player who has the turret has to constantly be considering if rotating the turret is more beneficial for them than taking a different action.

    On the other hand, buying even just one gets you a cool tiny space ship.

    The big difference is that Lando's Falcon comes with a sub ship in the escape pod that it can use as a separate ship or keep docked. If it's docked, the Falcon can use the escape pod pilot's ability as well as well as get some heavier shields.
    Other than that, it looks like it has less firepower (2 vs 3 for Solo's Falcon), and some lighter shields (3 vs 5).

    I don't think so. Aside from there being resistance/fo ones coming.

  • timspork's ghosttimspork's ghost Master Librarian and Ghostbuster Registered User regular
    So while removing all the cardboard stuff from my cases in preparation I noticed a few things.

    All my cool little boxes I hand made to store the ship tokens in are now obsolete since the pilots that come with the ships are different. Not that big a problem for me since I ended up not really liking them for actual ease of use.

    My Rebel and Imperial storage containers are much more open now that there is no first order or resistance in them. Of course I'll need new containers for them.

    I have no idea where the binder of cards went? It is just gone. I have the Legion binder and the Armada cards are all in a card box. But no X-Wing.

    Update: I found my binder. I forgot it was a huge zipper multi section binder needed to hold all the pilot and upgrade cards. Guess that will be a lot lighter for a while.
